Hi Sandy, Welcome to the AECF group! It was great meeting you this weekend. I have an article that I want to send to you that will be of interest to your son. I will try to send it via private message - but it might be too long!
Hi, all! I'm new here and am not quite sure how to use the site, yet. Do I write here in the comment wall section or above in the text section?
I'm excited about connecting with other Navy Moms! My son left on his first deployment 2 weeks ago. I definitely took it harder than I was expecting! He called me at school after he boarded and was ready to ship out and I was surprised to find myself crying! For the past week he hasn't been able to email me at all as they shut down all external communication :( but finally got an email from him today!
